Westchester County's consumer chief says a check of 59 supermarket dairy cases found an average of 88 outdated items per store, including some cheddar cheese that was eight months past its prime.
An A&P in Greenburgh (Tarrytown Road) had 433 outdated items, says Gary Brown, the county director of consumer protection. An A&P in Mamaroneck, a Food Emporium in Yorktown and a Shop Rite in Bedford Hills (where the cheddar cheese was found) all had 247 or more products that were being sold after their ``sell-by' date.
Nearly half of all the expired products has passed their date by 10 or more days, he says. Cheese, yogurt and vacuum-packed meat were most commonly expired.
I intend to contact the company and express my concerns. I will invite the A & P to send a representative to a future Town Board meeting to explain what happened and what actions are being taken to make sure this never happens again.
